Wondering about using steel ammo  containers bolted solid with bags of lead shot inside. Containers bolted shut also. Is this acceptable?

Is there a reason why you wouldn't simply heat up the ammo boxes and be done with it?

Think about keeping it intact and attached in this instance

Chris;

I think he is suggesting using lead shot in the ammo boxes because if the ballast somehow got loose, small lead BBs would not be nearly as dangerous as a big chunk of lead flying around.

People have been using lead shot for years in containers & inside frame rails. Go to the rule book & don't read anything into it that isn't in black & white.

  Don't think you can use concrete. It's been tried. Not good.
